Ship model show

 

“Masters of Miniatures,” the 40th annual Model Shipwright Guild show, is being held now through Saturday, March 22 at the USS Constitution Museum, Building 12, Charlestown Navy Yard.

 

More than 50 different ships created by modelers from across New England will be on display. There will be a variety of reproductions of War of 1812 vessels, modern ships and ships-in-bottles. Modelers have masterfully captured the richness of maritime history in miniature.

 

Attendees will have the opportunity to view the prize-winning models from the last five years, partake in family activities including a scavenger hunt, learn how to get a ship into a bottle, observe a model ship restoration every Wednesday, and much more.

 

Volunteers from the USS Constitution Shipwright Guild will be on hand for visitors to watch them in action and ask questions.

 

Admission to the museum and exhibit is free with donations welcome.
